Deep in the southernmost part of Alabama, along the banks of a lazy winding river, lies the sleepy little community known as Lost River, a place that time itself seems to have forgotten. After a startling diagnosis from his doctor, Oswald T. Campbell leaves behind the cold and damp of the oncoming Chicago winter to spend what he believes will be his last Christmas in the warm and welcoming town of Lost River. There he meets the postman who delivers mail by boat, the store owner who nurses a broken heart, the ladies of the Mystic Order of the Royal Polka Dots Secret Society, who do clandestine good works. And he meets a little redbird named Jack, who is at the center of this tale of a magical Christmas when something so amazing happened that those who witnessed it have never forgotten it. Once you experience the wonder, you too will never forget A Redbird Christmas.

Sure, I'd love to hear your story....
I must confess that I occassionally drift toward the Grinch side of Christmas, but this delightful book has re-set my mood with a sweet and touching story that hits all the right notes without once being preachy or saccharine. I'm going to add having the family listen to "A Redbird Christmas" as a new holiday tradition in our house.
Thank you Fannie Flagg! What a delightful book for everyone to enjoy. I loved it and look forward to your next book.
A wonderful bit of prose. My wife and I found this story to be heart warming and charming. It is reminiscent of Tom Bodet's "The End of the Road" or Andy Griffith's Mayberry. A thoroughly enjoyable small town story. Highly recommended!
This is a delightful book, and appropriate for any season of the year. Fannie Flagg has once again shown us the excellent quality of her writing. I can hardly wait for her next novel.
While this book sounds as if it is a Christmas read, it really isn't. Flagg has written an easy to listen to story which will pull at your heart strings and leave you feeling better about the human race. I was captivated and recommend it for all ages.
I loved this book and didn't want it to end! What a great story made particularly enjoyable because it was narrated by the author!
I loved Fannie Flagg narrating this story. It is a feel good story and give you the warm fuzzies for sure!
Fannie Flaggs other books.
Her narration in the accent of the area the story takes place.
Found love for the unexpected
This book I listen to over and over. It is a sweet story about a place down south where everyone gets along and the weather is so wonderful. It is just a christmas feel,good story.
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
An average Christmas, feel good read. Does not make me want to read more of her work. She does a pretty good job narrating.
I consider this book to be light reading. Simple story, light characters, happy ending all wrapped up. I like to listen to a variety of books and this was a good one for the Christmas holidays when I am so busy.
I wouldn't have changed this book. It is what it is.
She is Fannie Flagg. I recognize her voice from years ago when she was on game shows on TV. Quiet, calm,
I read this book, because it was the December choice for our book club. We try to choose an upbeat book for this time of year. It was an up beat book.
